    Negative Option offers is eventually going to get on the boot due to FTC scrutiny. Acai was the berry that did everybody in. From "faux" endorsements to heavily trafficked faux blogs, the FTC was sick and tired of people complaining and now wants to institute regulations for marketers and the like.

    My Acai Berry campaigns are still running. I don't know if they will take it down. We had the same problems years ago with Coral Calcium.

    Banned categorically on MSN, and FB, as well as on most new Adwords campaigns.

    It's a pretty scummy set up. They begin the "trial" period when the user submits his/her credit card, and not at a point in time at which they might have actually received the "free" trial shipment and have a reasonable period of time during which to evaluate it. In other words, the rebill happens a few days after the "free" trial is ordered.

    I know it's been hugely profitable for some, but I've never been able to stomach promoting it myself. I'm sort of a wimp in that respect.

    also i heard somewhere that the phone number used to cancel the membership were premium rate numbers which took the customer in circles....loads of difficulty cancelling.
